Realizing the Dream World of Anodyne on Xbox One

I'm happy to announce that Anodyne, our surreal, dream-like adventure game is now available on Xbox One. As you wander the dreamscapes of Anodyne, you may wonder how such worlds came to be. Well, today, with rarely shown concept art, I'd like to take you back 6 years to when we were creating the levels. To make a level, I first developed descriptions for the areas, and then relied on the expertise of Marina Kittaka, the artist and writer, to visually flesh out the worlds. I was heavily inspired by the surreal nightmare spaces of the cult classic Yume Nikki, as well as the faint sense of unease that hangs over the dream world of the classic Link's Awakening. Also, Link's Awakening and... Read more: Realizing the Dream World of Anodyne on Xbox One

How the Creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Help You Choose Your Character

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is breaking from its predecessors in a number of big ways; Odyssey takes place centuries before the Assassins were even ‘a thing’, adds considerable RPG elements, and, most significantly, puts the power of choice into your well-armed hands. “Because choice is at the center of everything, we thought it'd be a huge disservice if we were then like ‘here's your person: go!’" Mel MacCoubrey told me at a recent preview event. She’s the Narrative Director on ACO, working out of Ubisoft Quebec. So, with that in mind, let’s meet Kassandra and Alexios. Unlike Assassin’s Creed Origins, which allowed you to occasionally sail around the Mediterranean... Read more: How the Creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Help You Choose Your Character

Bid on Custom Xbox One X Consoles from Top Celebrities to Support Make-A-Wish

Back in 2007, to celebrate the first anniversary of Xbox 360, our Xbox team down under kicked off a program called Konsoles for Kids. The idea was simple. Tap a local designer to jazz up some custom Xbox 360 consoles, get them autographed by some of the country’s top talent and auction them off for charity. Back then, we partnered with the likes of Peter Jackson, Russell Crowe, The Wiggles and a few others with a goal to raise $30,000 for Make-A-Wish. This year, with the same great cause at heart, we’re taking this idea to a whole new level. Rallying some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment and the Internet at large, Xbox and Make-A-Wish have teamed up for the 2018...

Out of the Shadows Comes the Ninja Class in TERA on Xbox One

Starting today, TERA’s action combat gets even deadlier with the introduction of an exciting new playable character class on Xbox One: the ninja. The ninja is a quick, mobile damage-dealer with a mystical connection to divine fire. Ninjas chop, stab, and slice their way through enemies, and can dodge through enemy attacks with ease. Every hit of the ninja’s punishing seven-hit basic attack combo also decreases the cooldowns of your main skill combo of Decoy Jutsu, Double Cut, and Skyfall—all of which chain off the same button! But what really sets the ninja apart is her ability to focus her Chi into some spectacular fire-based skills. Burning Heart shoots a steady stream...

Investigate the Layers of Fear and >observer_ Connections

As you walk through the hallways of the mansion in Layers of Fear, there are thousands of subtle details that you can miss. Everything about the hallway is meticulously designed to push you forward, but if you stray from the beaten path, you’ll be rewarded with many surprises. With >observer_, the hallways of the apartment complex offer similar rewards. There’s a natural link between the format of the hallways in both games. Each leads you forward, maybe even pushes you with fear toward your final destination. But, not all doors are locked, not all quests are clearly mapped out, and not all secrets are easy to find. We like to leave breadcrumbs for our fans though, so here are... Read more: Investigate the Layers of Fear and >observer_ Connections

Frantic Speedrunning Platformer Razed is Available Now on Xbox One

Razed is a lightning-fast platform racing game that's all about speedrunning. Levels are littered with pitfalls, death traps and precision platforming. We’ve made the game challenging but here are our six most useful tips to help you get through without being razed. 1) If at first you don't succeed retry, retry again We learned early on in development that retrying a run with as little fuss as possible is essential. For this reason, we mapped Retry to a face button making it as accessible as jumping. No menus, no fuss, just instant retry action. 2) Keep moving Your character has got power shoes locked on. Running builds up power. Standing still, going slowly or using abilities... Read more: Frantic Speedrunning Platformer Razed is Available Now on Xbox One
